- Can you wrap gift baskets like a pro? We are looking for a small team of volunteers who are interested in helping collect, sort and wrap up donations for the BLINGO event Fri 3/22/19. We have one great volunteer, but they need some friends to share the fun. Great opportunity for the parent who wants to be involved in school events but may not be available during school hours.
